.
Nobody is hating on Lambo. I’m just saying he won’t put us over the top in 2013

Snider also improved his K/BB as he matured, minor leagues anyway.
.
I’m not slamming Lambo here, I’m just saying that he is probably no better than Snider

It CAN get worse than Snider/Tabata/Presley have done whether you guys want to believe it or not.

In his time in the Eastern League he had an .825 OPS.

We are getting 0 production from RF so why not give him a chance? Cant hurt. I mean there is no winning with some of u the guy hits 31 HR and drives in 92 runs and that’s not good enough? Come on

.
I hope Lambo becomes a good major leaguer, don’t get me wrong. Just don’t bet the wad on it.

.
Point is this: lots of homers in minors is great but may not translate to the bigs. Pearce, Eldred, Hyzdu… Lambo is not a top prospect any longer so let’s just wait until September for his debut. I don’t think his bat will make a difference in the playoffs. He should be auditioning for next April not this October.

The 31 homes he hit were in single A and double A. He never hit for a lot of home runs in triple A.

Jeff Clement maybe? Maybe Garrett Jones or Josh Reddick? Reddick started drawing more walks though before he wsa called up (he was pretty much only hitting homers and doubles though with a .230 avg).
